A fabulous flight on the seaplane over the estuary and over several glaciers, beautiful scenery. Excellent pilot and guide. Can recommend. We booked via the ship, not sure if it would be cheaper booked separately. Well organised, smooth take off and landing. Worth it.

We booked with our cruise line. This is sold out very early so you should not wait until you get to the Terminal. You can book directly with Wings Airways & The Taku Glacier Lodge I believe. google their site.

The cruise excursion only took 10 people on the sea plane, to Taku Lodge. One group left as we arrived.
